Golden Boys and their Gold Digging Girls

The talents of Charles Ruggles as a comedian have been vastly unappreciated, in my humble opinion, and this motion picture is the proof. Thank goodness this film was made in 1933 and not a year later, because it probably would not have been made at all. Condemned by the Catholic Legion of Decency, this pre-code story about divorce, alimony and the antics of men and women chasing each other had me ROTFL (rolling on the floor laughing, for those of you that are not up to speed with the new 'texting' abbreviations). Ruggles has lines that an eight year old will not find funny or unusual, but adults today as well as in 1933 will find outrageously funny in their sexual context. There is hardly a scene that doesn't have multiple clich├ęs and double entendre phrases about the lives of men and women in relationships. Even today I am too shy to tell you about one line Ruggles has while he and Blackmer are thinking about his vacation at the ocean resort. I laughed and almost choked on my popcorn, but I would never admit that in court. Charles Ruggles plays the part of a manservant to a wealthy businessman who is played by Sidney Blackmer. When Blackmer is sent to alimony jail, along with Charles Ruggles, Blackmer bails Ruggles out and sends him on a vacation at the ocean where servant Ruggles pretends to be a wealthy big game hunter from England. It doesn't take long for the girls to flit around Ruggles and one in particular makes him her gold-digging target. The fun continues as we discover that the gal after Ruggles is the intended future bride of his boss. It all comes to a head with an intricate scheme by a newspaper reporter who puts it all together and helps the boys find a way to get back at the gold digging, scheming girls in their lives. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with lots of warm melted butter on top and enjoy the show!
